- New CF Curtis Granderson, on giving up his favored No. 28 jersey to manager Joe Girardi. Girardi plans to switch from No. 27 to symbolize the club's pursuit of its 28th championship.
“I thought, 'Let me back away from that.' ... I didn't want to mess with that.”
Granderson will wear No. 14, which he wore in high school because his father had worn the number in an adult softball league.
